ELIE SAAB Pre Fall 2015 Folk Reverie Collection traverses new territory in fabric and embroidery techniques infusing finery into folk fantasy with the modern nomad in mind.
With depth and luminosity, the season’s palette of black and creamy pink moonstone is tempered by amethyst and intense cardinal red.
A thoroughly modern floral bouquet paints the print that is parsed throughout the collection in graphic variations.
In a voyage to the east, silhouettes are magnified, exuding free-spirited ease with bell-shaped pagoda sleeves, wide-leg pants and full skirts.
Like visual storytelling, harvest-inspired embroidery creates textured allure.
A short fur jacket in brilliant red features cutout flowering forms, while fur-trimmed wool coats in soft hues and
embroidered coats in black add fantasy, grandeur and finish.
The Poincare bag receives the collection’s signature print upon leather and assumes new shapes: including a mini, almost square-like version, with a top handle and shoulder strap.
Folk costume and its hand-worked embroidery infuse the ELIE SAAB Pre Fall 2015 collection with rich color, poetic motif and a generous sense of volume and texture as a contemporary spirit transforms tradition.
